    I do have a perfect memory. I can’t remember that I ever have forgotten something.

    Shiny ;)

    I had the fortune of taking the last shuttle crew sailing a while back. The nicest group of genius Firefly camaraderie I ever had the pleasure to meet.

    This is one that still resonates with me today and has actually had a real impact on my relationship with aircraft.

    "Know what the first rule of flying is?
    Love. Can know all the math in the 'verse but take a boat in the air that you don't love? She'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down...tells you she's hurting before she keens...makes her a home.”


    It is love that keeps a boat afloat.

    Not aviation related but you can't talk about Firefly quotes without:

    "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you"
